As one of the most prolific of the modern architects, A Quincy Jones had his hand in over 5,000 built structures in California. Jones body of work includes, churches, restaurants, university buildings as well as single family homes. He had various collaborators over the years, including, Frederick R Emmons along with modern developer Joseph Eichler to build several quintessentially modern housing tracts in Northern and Southern California. He was a believer in creating housing that functions within a community.
Jones’ own house was built within the Mutual Housing Association in Brentwood. The MHA was a project he collaborated with fellow architect Whitney R Smith and noted landscape architect Garrett Eckbo to build modern homes for generally progressive minded people. Richard Neutra and Craig Ellwood also contributed to this landscape of what is now called Crestwood Hills. A Quincy Jones would also teach and become Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Southern California. We are fortunate that many of the homes he built still stand today.
